I understand that PA are planning to go ahead with the British, which will be a useful addition to armies in both the European and North American theatres. The intention is to start with the Highlanders, as these are something a little different.
Do we know if during the SYW, the highlanders operated in close order similar to the rest of the line infantry, or were they sometimes used in more open formations - I ask as it will influence what poses to produce?
I am not sure if the plan is for 3 or 4 moulds, for now assuming only 3 then I would suggest the 6 figures should be:
- Standard Bearer
- Private advancing
Then another two chosen from:
- Private at march attack
- Private standing firing
- Private kneeling firing
- Private loading
- Any other ideas?
Is this the correct hand position for British to hold the musket when marching - it is different to what has been used for the figures in the past?
I have to confess I am not too well read on the British, so more than ever, input from this group would be useful.
